Above Water

Dear members of the PAA,


You are invited to participate in a study assessing the game Above Water, developed by Rina R. Wehbe ( and team under the supervision of Dr. Lennart E. Nacke and Dr. Edward Lank at the University of Waterloo. Above Water is designed to help people learn about the stigma associated with clinical anxiety, specifically generalized anxiety and panic disorder.  


As an expert participant in this study, you will be asked to evaluate and provide feedback on Above Water (a card game with digital components), especially with respect to your thoughts on its use and other feedback based on your professional expertise. Participation in this study is voluntary, and we ask you to complete it on your own time. We expect the evaluation of the game to take approximately half an hour to an hour, and a follow up interview to take approximately one hour. Follow up will be conducted either in person, via telephone/Skype, or via email, whichever is preferable to you. You may decline to answer any questions; you may decide to withdraw at any time.


Please see attached Information Letter for more details about the game and the study. If you are interested in participating or would like more information on our project, please contact research assistant Kelly Zhang at
